The Aquila Golf Course facility offers two golf courses; one is a Championship length course while the other is a par-3, nine-hole course. The championship course provides an excellent game of golf for an affordable price. There are scenic views of mountains and downtown Phoenix as well as a challenging layout featuring several water hazards and bunkers. Although the terrain is rather hilly, it is still relatively walkable. The course has an excellent range of holes that each have a unique character, the par 5's are especially notable. Native grasses and wildflowers are also present on Aquila's Championship course, further adding to its natural beauty.

The Saturday Version of the Don Peterson 2 man best ball tournament and of course the regular VGA event were played concurrently in one event today. VGA donated some pretty good prize money and it didn’t cost our players a penny extra. Pretty nice eh? So don’t miss out on the Wednesday version this coming Wednesday at Ken McDonald course in Tempe. In first today and playing a spectacular round in 63 strokes, Steve Richter. Second place went to Danny Delgado three strokes off Steve’s pace at 66 net. Three players tied at 67 for third place, Tim Haight took the money on the scorecard playoff and Diz Disque and John Pierce shared the Atta a Boy award. Good scores out there today guys everyone worked hard. We started at 852 AM 10 minutes late, but it got pretty warm towards the end. My phone showed 96 when we hit the cantina.  Rest of the scores below for the regular event.
